Walk with Witches
The tour began at Crow Haven Corner, 125 Essex Street, with a spell casting demonstration. Our guide, Tom, talked about the elements on a witch's altar and the ceremonial use of tools including candles and knives (no tourists were harmed in the making of this tour).
From Crow Haven Corner we began a walk around Salem, which talked about Salem history, stopping at the Roger Conant Statue, the location of the old Salem jail, 43 Church, Hex, , the Bewitched statue, Omen, the Old Burying Point, and back to Crow Haven Corner.
The tour made interesting connections between Salem's history and Witches, identifying some of the magic (and even the curses) that can be found in stories of Salem both old and new.
I don't want to say too much, because then you won't want to take the tour. This 90-minute tour is a great option for anyone looking to learn more about Witches and Witchcraft in Salem. Visit WitchWalk.com for more information.
